March 15-29 – Artwork from over 100 Nanuet students was on display at various businesses around Nanuet. On the evening of March 29th, Nanuet and Beyond and the Nanuet Chamber of Commerce presented the 5th Annual Art Exhibition at the Shops at Nanuet in the 2nd-floor atrium between Macy’s and Regal Theaters.

Our Art Show continues to grow each year as does our partnership with the Nanuet School District! It is always well attended with over 100 adults as well as the children artists.

Prior to the event, all the artwork is judged by local artists, painters, sculptors, to identify first, second, third and honorable mention awards in each school category. A grand prize “Best in Show” is also selected. The Nanuet Chamber of Commerce presents prizes of cash or gifts to all the winners.

Congratulations to all the winners who were recognized that evening!!!!

(All the students who participated as well as the teachers and judges are invited to the Clarkstown Town Hall Meeting, Tuesday, April 9th at 7 PM where a special recognition and certificate will be presented to all the participants by George Hoehmann, Town Supervisor ).
